I wanted to open up a discussion on the new developments and advancements in terms of sequencing techniques and the computational analysis methods within next few years; may the next 5.
How NGS is evolving across the globe? What are the new plans, additions, major changes in terms of sequencing methods and the downstream processing? In case of sequencing technique, as per my knowledge, the recent advancement is oxford nanopore; or is there anything else on which someone is working upon?
And what in terms of computational methods, for e.g. programming. Shell and Python/Perl and C are preferable so far. "R" is of course playing a key role. What are the other evolving stuff one should start looking into and learn?
